@KickUp  I've heard from the testers you have the 2001 Impreza WRC, I wonder if you've changed the interior to the correct one? I believe you had the interior from a 98-99 one.
I believe we have. Will double check
Do the other way around. You had the correct interior but wrong exterior ;)

One big question though:

Did group A from DR survive?

I guess it did since the Lancer Evo VI is a group A car? Please tell me we still have the 555? Maybe even the real works model?
There was a gameplay video from the announcment event, you could see some shots of the competitors cars, there was the Lancer Evo VI (which was driven by the player), Impreza 1995, Delta HF Integrale and Escort RS Cosworth
Out of interest where did you see this? There were only two rally cars shown at the launch event: the Group A Evo VI and the NR4 Impreza.

'morning @Kick_Up! Could you explain the absence of the modern WRC cars, if possible? Is it the FIA dicking around with the license or is there some exclusivity involved that stopped you from attaing it?

Yep, basically that. It's sad but that's how some roll
So what exactly are we talking about here and where do we draw the line with modern? Are older spec WRC's like the 01/07 Focus still in the game or are these ruled out as well? Is it just cars from the 2010 and after that are unattainable?
That's right. The '01 Impreza and Focus were in the build we saw, as was the '07 Focus. 
That would mean there's at least hope for older WRC spec machines as DLC?

GC8 WRC - there is still hope! ;)
Ha! I am hoping along with you but, at present, there isn't really a class for it to drop in to! (Unless you had two Impreza WRCars in the early 2000's class).

Ah, of course! Sorry, I forgot that was showing the "complete" listing!

@tbtstt

So, stilll no freakin' Audi in the SuperCar roaster? I like the guy, and I like the car... but I will not like them anymore hehehehe

Maybe today I find them here in my town (it's the FIA RX prize giving in Oporto) and have a little rant with them xD

Sorry @TheFlyingTuga, I missed your comment! Sadly not. Like you I think the EKS Audi would be a fantastic addition to the class. @KickUp may correct me but, as I understand it, it's a licensing issue. 

Perhaps the official Audi backing for EKS for 2017 might change things?

@tbtstt About the earlier WRC cars, has the licensing finished for that or there could be more? It's been said that the car list in build you played is only half of it.
As I understood it, we saw the "full" car list, though about half of those were playable on the day. Again @KickUp, @Hatward or @ChristinaMc may be able to confirm if I have got the wrong end of the stick there. Be brilliant if more cars were to be added on top of those though!

I can remember most of the cars from the day, however I haven't posted any car list yet as I think there are still license to be acquired. 
Well who needs modern shoe cars when we have group A? A far more interesting era.
Only because you're rubbish in the new cars*.  ;)

(* Group A is my fave era as well though: I gave the Group A Evo a good hammering yesterday!)

How tastes can vary. I like pretty much all rally cars. However, tastes are not be argued about.

@tbtstt  Thanks for the info. If you don't mind, since it's the full list, how many rally cars (that is, of the rally discipline) would you say there are, in total (an estimate)?

When I first read about the stage generator, I was seriously worried because of the Co-Driver/Pacenotes, but those who have tried it say it works fine, which is a relief.

As for the Boundaries and Corner Cuts being discussed a page or two ago, I still think it's better not to reset the car and break the immersion and to, instead, just slap corner cutters with a 2 minute time penalty as a reward for the "interesting line" they decided to take, thus not breaking the immersion and also making the player feel more like a certain real life rally driver who also happened to help develop the game...

My rough guess (and don't quote me) is approximately 30 rally cars. I'm sure the figure of 50 cars in total was mentioned yesterday and I count 18 non-rally cars. I may be forgetting/have missed some though, so please don't be mad if the above numbers are wrong! 

As I said in my earlier post, the absence of the modern WRCars was the only thing I was disappointed about when we left CM at the end of the day. The addition of R5 is a great consolation though: it's such a key class in so many current national Championships that it retains a contemporary feel to the car list in D4.

@tbtstt Do you have any idea how many R5 cars are already licensed? @RallyDriven mentioned 4 or 5 cars on that class but didn't remember how many they were and which were licensed.
I saw that @RallyDriven and @Rallycameraman have both mentioned four or five cars in that class. I only remembered seeing three in the menu screen (and one of those I'm not 100% on), so I'm not that helpful there...

...given it's in the trailer I assume that they already have the license for the Fiesta R5. For me that is "the" R5 car, so I'm really glad that's in. I spent quite a bit of time in the Fiesta R5 during the test day last year and it's a blast to drive!
